CASE STUDY

Dairy Farm Project

Innovative Partners were approached by a family owned dairy farm who had received one of our emails advising that he may be eligible for a cash benefit and wanted to understand more.

On our first call with the farmer he explained that he had been trialling new feeds for the cows and implementing seaweed into their diet, in an attempt to increase a higher quality milk and reduce methane output. The farmer trialled a number of feeds and timings of feed before finding the best method.

As the Innovative Partners team continued discussions, we learned that the farmer had upgraded his facilities and now milk collection and bottling was handled onsite. The herd was trained to come in when ready to be milked and in return they would be fed. If the cow wasn’t ready to be fed then it would be encouraged by robots and sensors to go back into the field until ready.

This project involved a number of activities that were eligible for R&D Tax Relief. Our team of experts were able to understand the farmers problems and challenges and create a technical narrative with supporting cost collection report to ensure the client receive over £120,000 as a cash benefit.
